3 Service Model Architectures

Princeton Information cloud solutions generally involve one of the three cloud service models to bring you cost-effective and time-saving services. They are Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), or Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS):

SaaS – We work with SaaS providers to deliver a single application through the browser to our customers that leverage a multi-tenant architecture. Princeton Information provides system integration and software configuration services as required. For our clients, SaaS requires little or no upfront investment in servers or in software licensing. Since there is only one application to maintain, service providers costs are low compared to conventional hosting and they can pass those savings unto you.

PaaS – is a variation of SaaS with the extension of a development environment as a service, which is exposed to the client. Princeton Information works with clients to build their own applications that run on the PaaS provider’s infrastructure. The applications are delivered to the client’s users, via the Internet, from the provider’s servers.

IaaS – is a cloud computing model in which a company outsources the equipment used to support operations, including storage, hardware, servers, and networking components. The provider owns the equipment, and is responsible for housing, running, and maintaining it. Princeton Information can help you select the right vendor and type of service that best fits your environment. We can help you with the design, cost benefit analysis, transformation and transition to the new service model.
